(CBS) -- It has been three weeks since the judge presiding over the case of a Zumba instructor accused of prostitution said she would unseal affadavits in the case, but so far the documents relating to the arrest of Alexis Wright and her co-defendant have not been released, reports the Portland Press Herald newspaper.

Wright, 29, pleaded not guilty earlier this month to 106 counts of prostitution and other charges after being accused of running a brothel in her dance studio and in an office across the street.

She is also accused of secretly videotaping many of her encounters. Her alleged business partner, Mark Strong Sr., also pleaded not guilty to 59 counts.

According to the Press Herald, Superior Court Justice Nancy Mills said on Oct. 9 that she would unseal the documents, which are thought to contain details about the case against Wright and Strong, that day.

The paper is asking the District Attorney's office to unseal the records and reports that it is unclear why the judge did not unseal them.
